another. is >> eliot: when you look back at bill clinton who we look at as one of the great politicians of the past 30 or 40 years, his sister soldier moment was when he went to the base and said i disagree with you about this. it showed a certain force of character that he would say no. and romney has never done that. >> in a sense you have to do what both clinton and obama did, and to some reagan did as well, which is to push back your base, and while at the same time say i'm just going this for the camera, i'm your map. all of the great politicians know how to do that. they have to deal with their base in that way. >> eliot: president obama got significant criticism on the first couple of years of his first term on issues such as immigration and lesbian/gay issues as well and then suddenly there when he needed the base to come back he came out in support of same-sex marriage. and that solidified him as yes, once again he is our candidate. >> that's right. >> eliot: there you see him as the nimble politician, and i think that has carried him forward. >> as with b
american adults. the bloomberg news poll measured reasonable ratings. president clinton came out on top, president obama was second at former president george w. bush scored third at 46%, a solid three points ahead of mitt romney. you heard that right, george w. bush is more popular than mitt romney. and some republicans are blaming the campaign's problem on the candidate himself. an anonymous romney organization top member was quoted as saying . . . and a top washington republican . . . turning to the latest swing state polls. a survey has likely voters in new hampshire backing the president a 50 to 45%. new hampshire voters also give the president a 7-point edge. in virginia the president is leading mitt romney again by two points, as does suffolk university and d.c. 12 poll. while the nevada virginia and colorado races are close, mitt romney chose to campaign today in pennsylvania. he told the crowd at the military academy. >> romney: i want to take that big cloud off of the small business world that is hang over them. three-quarters say they don't want to hire mo
. the president has record on manufacturing jobs since president clinton. and he noted as much during his dnc speech. >> and after a decade of decline, this country created over half a million manufacturing jobs in the last two and a half years. >> jennifer: now in polititfacts rated that statement by president clinton as true. mitt romney's own plan would cost 800,000 u.s. jobs according to the study for american progress. the corporate tax cuts would cost the u.s., according to that study, nearly $1 trillion. all right. now the third debate topic, and the third myth that is -- we are debunking here health you will hear this over and over again. you have heard it. the memo reads $716 billion will be raided from medicare to pay for obamacare. now this is the same raiding medicare lie that romney has been pushing since august. >> romney: the president's plan cuts medicare -- excuse me -- well let's see -- there we go. by $716 billion. cut. >> jennifer: polititfact, the fact checker in looking at that statement rated it mostly false because here is the truth. president obama
to young turks. mitt romney and president obama are competing for bill clinton's attention. >> a few words from bill clinton can do a man a lot of good. >> president clinton, thank you for your very kind introduction, although i have to admit i really did like the speech a few weeks ago a little bit better. >> all right romney in that speech had a whopper about special interest. you know what i love about this show? facts. we're going to bring you facts about his top donors. will blow your mind. hows that for fun? you know mitt romney's best friend caused this. >> it was a scramble in the end zone and then a split decision. one says touchdown another says no. >> this is comical to me, really. >> how is mitt romney related to that? i'm going to prove that. you sit right here and you'll see exactly how he's related. it turns out our government has been lying to us about civilians killed in broken strikes. i know, shocker. but this is the result. >> one of the things we heard from several people is that they didn't know what america was before drones and now what they know of america is drone
's interesting is the governor's reaction was the exact same reaction that hillary clinton had, our secretary of state when she told embassy cairo not to release the statement that they released. secretary clinton thought it was wrong. she thought it was weak. and governor romney had the exact same instincts as secretary clinton. the real question here is why was there a cover-up or this confusion at the white house over what happened because we know it was an orchestrated terrorist attack and yet for nine days, susan rice and others went out and said this was spontaneous mob violence related to. >>tube clip. we know that's not true. why was susan rice out on the sunday shows making those statements and trying to cover up what actually happened. that's the real question to look at here. >> jennifer: right. it seems like you're talking about two different obviously incidents. one is the egyptian embassy and the one is the libyan compound. there were two different things but the question i think is -- on everybody's mi
that president obama was kurt with hilary clinton. >> i don't think i am that bad. >> you are likable enough hilary. >> thank you. >> jennifer: there has been endless speculation about who is going to do better and of course the fact is they both have weaknesses when it comes to debating, and how do they get over those weaknesses. joining us tonight for more on how we can expect the to perform is alan schroeder. he is a professor of journalism at northeastern university and author of "presidential debates: 50 yours of high risk tv". love it! welcome inside "the war room" professor. >> thank you very much. i wanted to start by saying can i call you jennifer the way that sarah palin -- >> only if you wink when you do that. >> right. right. >> jennifer: you absolutely can, let's start with the candidate's weaknesses. you have said that president obama has several weaknesses. he may be overly cautious rusty, out of practice and testy. any of those fatal flaws? >> not necessarily unless they are magnified in a way that make them a fatal flaw. but related to all of that is this ide
to marry free enterprise to foreign aid at the clinton global initiative. paul ryan finds an employee's union he can actually support. starting with the president. after the death of chris stevens. the anti-muslim video that provoked the protests while defending the right to free speech. >> obama: americans have fought and died around the globe to protect the right of all people to express their views. even views we profoundly disagree with. and on this, we must agree there is no speech that justifies mindless violence. there are no words that excuse the killing of innocents. there's no video that justifies an attack on an embassy. >> eliot: the president warned iran that while it still had time to demonstrate its nuclear program was peaceful, that time was not unlimited. >> obama: make no mistake a nuclear armed iran is not a challenge that can be contained and that's why the united states will do what we must to prevent iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. >> eliot: the president also spoke out against human tra
clinton for president and in it, you wrote that the sex barrier is not taken as seriously as the racial one. do you still feel that way? >> well, you know, it depends on the situation. i think each person in this situation should be able to judge and that's especially true for women of color who may find themselves dealing with both in different situations. so there's no competition of tears here. they're both wrong. but obviously women are half of every group. so it's more extensive. it may or may not be more serious given the situation. but it's more extensive. >> jennifer: do you predict that we'll have a female president in the next four to eight years -- i shouldn't say four. maybe i would say four. 2016, is it possible? >> well, sure it is possible. i, frankly, did not think that hillary clinton could win not because of her but because of the fact that as long as most of us are -- men and women are raised primarily by women and not by men we associate female authority with childhood. and you could se
clinton in those series of debates, it was when it got a little more the cuff. he said you are likable enough hilary, that came across as very cool and dismissive, and perhaps that's a chance for mitt romney to make it a personal thing. perhaps a chance to lull obama into an unforced error like that. >> eliot: the debates rarely change the game only when -- as you said josh -- there is an unforced error. let's switch to the senate race. people thought the republicans would end up with 51 52 seats. how many senate seatings will the republicans hold when all is said and done. >> i don't think they will pick up a majority. and the simultaneous deterioration -- like tommy a three-term governor in wisconsin. very popular, moderate. as opposed to the todd akin fringe candidate, he is the big interest, so why is he losing his group? >> i have no idea. so it has to be a national phenomenon. but i don't really understand. >> eliot: if you had to pick one senate race, and capture the emotions of the nation right now, what would it be? >> florida is an easy one to look at conn
. kennedy, under lyndon johnson under jimmy carter, under bill clinton, and under barack obama. but the main thing is on pure, flat numbers don't lie. obama has created more jobs than -- not only more jobs than george w. bush. he's brought back all of the jobs lost under george w. bush. so when mitt romney and paul ryan say obama's done nothing about job creation, they are lyin' through their teeth. it is a great big fat lie! and they know it! >> announcer: this is the "bill press show." the powerful my steal an election but they cannot steal democracy. sir... excuse me, excuse me... can i get you to sign off on the johnson case... ♪ we built this city! ♪ don't let food hang around. ♪ on rock & roll! ♪ [ orbit trumpet plays ] clean it up with orbit!

[ laughter ] >> jennifer: that's newt gingrich offering president obama some unsolicited advice. meanwhile the obama and romney campaigns are managing expectations. even the most ardent democrat would admit that president obama isn't the best debater. but according to beth myers . . . >> jennifer: and then president obama's top political advisor is just as glowing about mitt romney . . . they are so funny, my opponent he is abe lincoln and daniel webster all rolled into one. isn't that kind of weird hearing the campaign say such nice things about their opponents? believe me it's not going to last and it's all part of managing expectations before the debate. for more i'm joined by one of the country's foremost experts on the subject. samuel popkin who is a professor of political science at the university of san diego. he has worked on campaigns going back to the 1970s, and he is also the author of "the candidate." welcome back inside "the war room," profez or. >> it's a pleasure to be back with you gove
has some brass as bill clinton would say. he tells george stephanopoulos he thinks the president is going to lie in the debates. >> i think the challenge that i'll have in the debate is that the president tends to -- how shall i say it, say things that aren't true. >> jennifer: all right. it isn't just the pot calling the kettle black it is also the pot's friends. mitt romney's surrogates have been repeating the same idea over the past 24 hours like karl rove who wrote in the "wall street journal," mr. obama has taken ordinary political differences between anything we've seen. every day it seems he attempts to disqualify his opponent through deliberate and undeniable falsehoods. and then when he was asked by jim acosta when romney was at cnn whether he had played fast and loose with the facts from time to time romney says this. >> we've been absolutely spot on and any time there's anything that's been amiss we correct it or remove it. >> jennifer: absolutely spot on. the audacity of this -- he's lying about lying.
, we saw front runners annointed by the media and campaign bosses, senator clinton and governor romney was presumed to be the nominee back then. in both parties we saw the voters take the whole process back from the bosses and the media. >> that's true. >> no one thought barack obama and john mccain would be the nominees in 2008. >> that's true. i don't know necessarily about barack obama i thought john mccain would be. >> the new hampshire primary was a big upset. >> if you look at 2000 and don't realize that he won 49% against george bush. if you look at the early stages of the primary hiring staff, mccain had all the top notch people in his team. he fired a lot because he ran out of money but he had most of the good people that you would want on your team on his team. romney the same way this time around. republicans have a habit of picking people who have run and lost before. there has only been george w. bush since 1976 has been nominated in the republican party without having previously run for and lost the nomination. >> very good point. >> we've only had one ticket, excluding t
. i take this stuff very seriously, the gentlemen i was emailing with is basically hilary clinton's spokesperson. they are in damage-control mode and i asked pretty poignant questions about what really went down. and what -- what -- this reporter at cnn has found the ambassador's diary four days later, laying around this compound picked up the diary, got the diary to the family, but used two very relevant portions of it in their reporting, and the state department called it disgusting. i called it good journalism. and that's where this came from. >> cenk: all right. it looks like the state department is overly touchy about this for political reasons. >> and the state has backed down -- the guy gave a statement to the "washington post" and said he shouldn't have said what he said to me. >> cenk: all right. michael hastings thank you for joining us. when we come back, war on drugs. we're going to talk about what an unmitigated disaster that is. >> what will you do when someone offers you drugs? >> just say no! >> the d d d d d d d d d d d d d d d d d d d d d d d d d
. joining me now former assistant to president clinton for national security affairs. thank you for joining us. >> a pleasure, eliot. >> eliot: let's start with the important question. what do we know about al-qaeda's attacks in the consulate in ben gassy. >> this was a well planned attack. somebody had been casing the consulate in benghazi for some time. whether they acted on the spur of the moment or if they had direction in outside of libya remains to be scene. >> eliot: the difficulty given the uncertainty and it's impossible to get your arms around all the facts very quickly. but the difficulty then is how do we then move in our evolving relationship with the new libyan government to control al-qaeda's presence and respect their sovereignty. where do we go in this evolving arab spring, in libya in particular. >> a lot of this takes time. building up a strong system of government, institution of government libya in particular build gadhafi never wanted an institution that would rival his him. every political faction within libya has weapons and obviously at least one of them or more us
